Good evening, Uniceft.
You sound smart enough to avoid obvious for-profit-come-ons, and smart
enough to have ceased watching that aweful television.
I too, still seek that 'place' where all is good, in touch, harmony, etc... Church has always been decent, and good morals, minimal sins to self &
others & earth, pay-it-forward good Karma, etc., but still wasn't there.
I'm no expert by any means, but my spirituality has improved just by simply letting go of that desire, and eliminating "want" . . .
Jiu-Jitsu extremely exhausting, but magical...so I still go once a week.
Now, I watch nature alot more closely, as recommended by my Shee-Han.
(Master Instructor). And I mean really dedicate several hours per week to feeding & watching birds, especially Ravens & Hawks. Lots of 'em in the
rural loc. where I live. And all the small mammals, chipmonks, squirrels, rabbits, and at night, I stare up at the stars when visible, and once in a
while I catch a glimpse of some cats or raccoons or possums scurring about! Most of their vision is based on movement, so I stand very still, and they
just do their thing like I'm not there! I have improved, and now see how calm Shee-Han is, when defending, no wasted moves!
I saw a male Cardinal swoop suddenly, only 8 feet away from me, to grab a worm...what a SAVAGE! He tore that thing to pieces and ate it real quick.
I LOVED it! Very satisfying, I guess. And a RedHawk swoop on a mole, like a fighter-jet, then gone! WOW!
And, of course, logging on to ATS late at night, and chiming in, or just reading, and googling topics of interest...
I don't know, keeping it simple, I suppose, ya know? It's your world, you decide what pleases you, let the B.S. go by the wayside, and enjoy life,
cause it's SHORT!
